    Bacon-asparagus dippers

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

  3. Start at one end of each asparagus spear and wrap a strip of bacon along the length of the asparagus. Place on the baking tray. Repeat with the remaining asparagus and bacon.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the bacon is crispy and the asparagus is tender.
  5. Jammy eggs

  6. Bring a pot of water to boil over high heat. Carefully poke a tiny hole into the bottom of each egg with an egg pricker or a safety pin.
  7. When the water is boiling, lower the eggs into the water and boil for 6 minutes.
  8. After 6 minutes, rinse the eggs in cold water. With a sharp knife, crack the top of the egg and cut it off.
